Highlights

David's delivery can range from trusted, masculine, warm, engaging and believable - to cool, modern, edgy and conversational, all easily achieved at your direction. In David's 20+ years as a voice over professional he's worked closely with trusted brands like RAM Trucks, Sam's Club, John Deere, Harley Davidson, Cisco, Time-Warner, Ford, Charter Communications, and Avene` Skin Care to deliver a dynamic voice over that stands out and cuts through the chatter! And when called for, David can easily morph into his deep Sam Elliot type strong, gritty Western cowboy delivery, adding what clients say is a certain genuine laid-back charm that really warms up commercials, promos, narrations, and animation.

Testimonials

We were working on a very quick turn around job and were desperate for a quality VO before sending to our client. David Byrd went above and beyond to help us bring the project to life under insane time restraints, and with limited guidance. He helped make what could have been a stressful situation much easier, and with a professional and caring demeanor. I would recommend David to anyone in need of a high quality and powerful voice over artist. I intend to work with him much more in the future, and look forward to the opportunity.

David was so great to work with, and international distance didn't cause even the slightest issue. He was extremely fast, delivered the lines exactly as we'd described, and was incredibly friendly and enthusiastic about the project. Definitely wouldn't have any reservations asking him to bring more characters to life for us in future games! Thanks so much David!

David was quick, efficient and easy to work with for our radio commercial. He knew exactly what kind of voice we wanted and even gave us two choices with different inflections. I highly recommend his work and may use him again for future projects.

Immix Productions

I was watching a commercial during a Sunday football game when I heard this amazing narration in the background of the ad. I googled the commercial name and found out that this narrator was David Byrd. I sent him an email with my idea and script and within a day or two, he sent back the finished voiceover. It was better than I ever could have expected and made my project what it is. One of the best voiceover artists I've heard. 100% will use him for his services again in the future.
